City Health Commissioner Letitia Dzirasa said Baltimore has seen a significant increase in COVID-19 positivity rates so far this month.
The latest seven-day average is 4.4%.
“That is concerning given that probably back in September, we were around two and a half percent,” Dzirasa said at a press conference.
The city is still meeting its goal of maintaining a positivity rate below 5%.
As of this morning, she said, Baltimore’s COVID cases increased by about 83% over the past four weeks.
